Hey everyone! We’re very excited to be adding a new element to Hedgers Abroad with the beginning of a new weekly vlog named Hedgers AVlog. This has been something we’ve been considering starting since the start of 2016, but hadn’t really ever gotten it started until now. We hope this is an interesting and fun new addition, and really look forward to the pressure of getting out and doing stuff so that we have footage to share! Before I get into it more, here’s the video:
Why a Vlog?
While we have loved making videos and sharing our experiences through both lens and writing, we have come to realize that our everyday, normal life is one of the things most absent from Hedgers Abroad. Since we regularly receive questions about our day-to-day life more than just about anything, we thought that starting a video log (vlog) might be a good way to show more of what our experience living abroad is actually like. We will continue to make our regular posts, sharing travel tips, telling stories, and discovering new things, but we wanted to show a bit more of our candid moments. These Vlog posts won’t always show up on here on the website, but they’ll be on our YouTube channel every week and more frequently posted on our Facebook page.
We love doing this blog and see this as a new way to share a more personal, unfiltered side of our experience abroad. We do, however, realize that the vlog format isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. For anyone wanting to follow along, make sure you’re subscribed to our YouTube channel and other social media. We won’t be keeping Hedgers Abroad and Hedgers AVlog separate, but we realize that it’s different content than we usually share here and don’t want to send out “New Post!!!!!” emails every time we put up a new episode of the vlog.
